Hi,
I am using SAX parser to parse an XML file which has <pre> element. Now I want to display the content in this tag as it is ( which includes tabs and carriage returns) into a jsp file. But I think that the parser is not recognizing carriage returns.
eg.
<pre>NameAgeSexRoks22MaleAman44Male</pre>

The output should be:
Name Age Sex
Roks 22 Male
Aman 44 Male

I think that in the characters() method the nextline characters after Sex,Male are not read. The encoding used is iso-8859-1.

The output which I am getting is :

Name Age Sex Roks 22 Male Aman 44 Male

The characters() method will be getting exactly the characters in the element, but note that you can't be sure that one call has the complete text. Due to the fact that SAX parsers read one buffer at a time and do NOT assemble the characters for you. There may be a second call to characters() containing the data that was truncated.
It is more likely that the HTML browser is discarding extra spaces tabs and cr for some reason.
